Friday Tidbits

Painting continues on Our Country Bungalow and Dear is doing an great job as usual.

Soon I’ll be able to show before and after all the way around the house. The new colors are Teton Blue with white trim. We purchased a 5 gallon bucket of the Teton Blue and we might need one more gallon.

My photos aren’t uploading this evening so I’ll try again tomorrow.

The small businesses in our little town are having sidewalk sales. They started on Thursday and continue till Saturday. After I was done at the hairdressers on Thursday I stopped by and walked Main street to see what I could see. I bought greeting cards for 50 cents each and a handmade soft simple leather wallet that fits in a pocket. I’ll use that little wallet on walks instead of taking my purse. There is a new little shop in town that I made two more purchases from that I’ll show photos of soon.

This photo popped up in my memories on Facebook this week from July of 2009. Me and my daughter transformed our patio gazebo into a Moroccan dining room for a bridal shower. Katie’s friend was into all things Moroccan. So much has changed for all of these young ladies since 2009. This was at our home in Kenmore.

Back to the present. After our very busy times last weekend we are heading into a quieter weekend with only painting, mowing and church on the schedule. What is happening in your corner of the world?

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. What a big painting job at your place, Ellen. I know your husband must be happy to be almost finished. It’s always fun to see those memories pop up, aren’t they? Time marches on.

  2. Looking good! Greg is doing a fabulous job.

    I like those reminders that float up from the past. Mine have been
    from Shutterfly and include many of the grands when they were little

    The Moroccan bridal shower is creative and fun. Is the “bride” still
    a fan of the style?

    Have a blessed weekend.


    • Vee, Greg is a painting pro and I appreciate his work ethic. I’ll pass along your compliment. Now about these girls…there is so much prayer behind the scenes for these dear friends of our daughter. Katie and I had such fun putting this scene together. Wouldn’t be able to pull it off these days…

  3. What an amazing transformation with the painting that your husband is doing, Ellen!

    What a lovely job you and your daughter did in transforming the scenery for the bridal shower in 2009. Such beautiful colors! It was good to see a picture of Katie. I hope she and her husband are doing well.
